Get Perfumed: Scent Layering for maximum effect

Natasha Dury

Scent layering is a technique used to create a unique and personalized fragrance experience by combining two or more perfumes. The number of times I make my mum spray the scent in the air so I can walk through it instead of her spraying directly on my skin is countless.

Different people have different ways of using their perfumes. At my home, mum likes to spray the fragrance on the skin to see how the fragrance works with her while I like to waft through the scent after spraying it in front of me.

Here are some tips to help you master the art of scent layering:

Start with a clean slate

Begin by showering or taking a bath, and avoid using strongly scented body washes or lotions before layering your fragrances.

Choose complementary scents

 Select two or three perfumes that complement each other. Choose scents that have similar base notes or share a common theme, such as floral, citrus, or woody.

Apply in the right order

Start with the lightest fragrance and then move on to the stronger scents. This will help prevent one fragrance from overpowering the others.

Apply strategically

Apply the fragrances to the pulse points, such as the wrists, neck, and behind the ears. You can also apply the scent to your hair, clothing, or even your scarf or handkerchief.

Experiment and have fun

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to scent layering, so experiment with different combinations and find what works best for you. Have fun and enjoy creating your own signature scent!

Consider the season and occasion

Consider the event when layering scents. For instance, during the summer, lighter, fresher fragrances may be more appropriate, while deeper, more complex scents may be better for a formal evening event.

Don’t overdo it

Be careful not to overdo it with the layering. Too many fragrances can create a confusing and overwhelming scent. Stick to a maximum of three fragrances at a time.

By following these tips, you can create a unique fragrance that reflects your personality and style. Experiment and have fun with scent layering!
